CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Tibetan Buddhism is all based on merit, performing religious ritual to earn  a better station once reincarnated. As a follower of Jesus, I thought my life was based on a grace-centered encounter with the Creator. When Micah was diagnosed with cancer I found myself quickly reverting to a merit-centered mindset. I would do whatever I needed to, if God would only heal my son. This mindset reflected a belief that God could love Micah and/or me more than He did. Also, that His love was conditional upon my works of religious ritual. It is a wrong mindset.

In our own lives, how much of our relationships are based on merit earning as opposed to grace? It’s easy to love those who love me. Do I only give to those who give to me or can I freely give to those who only take from me? Reflect on how your relationships really operate, and be open to exhibiting grace when it’s unmerited.

MOLESKIN:
I was really sweaty
